The Upping Your Elvis Podcast. Episode Eleven - Primal Play with Darryl Edwards
Chris & Jim chat to the brilliant Darryl Edwards from Primal Play about our latest #ElvisEnergyExperiment where we've been exploring the impact movement has on our energy, and looked at how moving our bodies brings an enormous energetic return!
It’s fair to say that most of us don’t relate exercise to playtime, but Darryl Edwards, leading movement expert, disagrees and says it's about time that we reframe how we view our journey to fitness, focussing more on ‘movement snacks’ and making it fun.
Darryl Edwards is a former Investment Banker Technologist and after almost two decades of becoming increasingly sedentary and sick, he decided to transform his health and designing the Primal Play Method of wellbeing. A back to basics approach with fun, and playful, animal moves at its heart.

The Upping Your Elvis Podcast. Episode Ten - De-Cluttering with Katherine Blackler from SortMySpace.co.uk
Chris & Jim chat to the fantastic Katherine Blackler from SortMySpace.co.uk about the #ElvisEnergyExperiment we ran with her recently and how de-cluttering is an amazingly powerful way to bring a new energy to our environment.
In fact it's often said that our physical environment is a mirror image of what goes on in our head (and vice versa), so it’s likely that cluttered and disorganised spaces are not going to do us any favours in terms of how we live and feel energetically.
Katherine is the immediate Past-President of APDO Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers having served on the Board since 2016. She runs SortMySpace.co.uk based in London and in July 2019, Katherine became the first person in the UK to become a CPO® (Certified Professional Organizer).
